There’s a reason Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake won’t seek re-election after one term.
He has failed his constituents and he knows he stands zero chance of winning.
Now, Flake refuses to participate in an event celebrating the GOP tax cut bill which will benefit millions of Americans.
From The Hill:
Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) said he skipped a gathering of congressional Republicans at the White House on Wednesday because he did not want to attend an event where lawmakers are expected to simply “stand around and clap.”
The event, attended by House and Senate GOP leaders and a number of Republican lawmakers, was held to celebrate congressional Republicans’ passage of a massive tax rewrite.
“I can only take so many of those stand around and clap things, I’d rather be here,” Flake told reporters at the Capitol.

More on Flake, per Downtrend:
Arizona Senator Jeff Flake continues to wage his scorched earth campaign against President Donald Trump and the media continues to treat this pathetic loser like he was Lady Gaga.
Flaky Flake who is about as popular in his home state as late-stage colorectal cancer wedged his way into a slow news cycle on the afternoon before Thanksgiving by ripping Trump for his Tuesday comments that were seen to be supportive of Alabama iconoclast Judge Roy Moore.
More via The Hill:
Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) criticized President Trump for backing Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore (R) despite numerous allegations of sexual misconduct.
Speaking on Fox News Radio’s “The Brian Kilmeade Show,” Flake said Trump “made a big mistake” Tuesday by supporting Moore.
“I think he should distance himself from Roy Moore, even if it means loosing that seat,” Flake told host Brian Kilmeade.
“I am on record saying I’d rather vote for a write-in Republican, I’d rather keep that seat Republican,” Flake added, “but if the choice was between Roy Moore and a Democrat, I would vote for the Democrat if I lived in Alabama.”
Trump told reporters on Tuesday that Moore denies the accusations made against him and that Alabama voters “don’t need a liberal” in the Senate seat.
You won’t be missed.
Perhaps the best part of the Trump agenda is weeding out the RINOs!
